Colour and Style Tips for an Autumn Wedding

Are you looking forward to attending an autumn wedding? Do you know what to wear? Autumn is such an exciting time, and just like the season, rust, oranges, and dark berry shades are great colour choices for autumn wedding outfits. Rust is a particularly on-trend colour this year. Have you seen the fabulous Bombshell London Rust Silk Dupion ‘Grace’ Tie Front Shirt Dress? Absolutely gorgeous. Let’s see what other colour and style tips we can share with you.

When to Start Shopping for an Autumn Wedding Guest Outfit

Is there ever enough time to shop for a wedding guest outfit? There is so much to think about. Do you feel like wearing a dress or trouser suit? Which shoes will complement the clothing, and will you add a hat, fascinator or headband? Fortunately, we can start shopping once we receive the wedding invitation and learn the dress code. Autumn in London might not be as wet as the Lake District, so consider the location as well when planning your wedding outfit. 

Black-tie Autumn Weddings   

Black-tie autumn weddings are typically held in the evening. Gentlemen wear a black or midnight blue dinner jacket, a dress shirt and bow tie. It is the perfect occasion if you love wearing evening gowns, of which Bombshell London has a wonderful range in sequins and velvet, in autumn colours such as wine and dark green. Our Satin Maxi Tea Dress in Navy is the show-stopping, floor-sweeping evening gown you have been searching for! The long tie can be draped over your shoulders for maximum drama or tied around your waist in a bow at the back for extra detail. If you don’t want a long evening dress or skirt, but do want an embroidered dress that honours the occasion, consider the Gold Grace Tie Front Shirt Dress.

Formal Autumn Weddings   

Formal autumn weddings can be in the daytime or the evening. Men wear a dark suit, white shirt and conservative tie for an evening wedding. You can wear dressy separates, a trouser suit, a jumpsuit or a formal dress of any length. Jumpsuits are very on trend right now and our Luxe Jersey Jumpsuit in Dark Green would be perfect dressed up with statement heels. Bombshell has a Dark Green Velvet ‘Edge of the Shoulder’ Flared Bombshell Dress that’s ideal for an autumn evening wedding.

Are you invited to a formal daytime wedding? The typical dress code for men is a morning coat, waistcoat and striped trousers. To complement, do you want something with a bit of autumn colour but still glamorous? Our Flame Silk Dupion ‘Grace’ Tie Front Shirt Dress is the one for you.

Semi-formal Autumn Weddings    

The dress code for semi-formal autumn weddings is more relaxed, and ladies can wear a cocktail-style dress, whether above the knee, knee-length, or tea-length. Our Edge of the Shoulder Dress in Wine Roses is ideal for this occasion. It is a vintage-inspired midi dress with a flared skirt and sits on the edge of the shoulder, creating a beautiful décolletage. Male guests wear a light or dark-coloured suit, with or without a tie.

Casual Autumn Weddings    

Casual autumn weddings can be tricky, but it is always best to make an effort and be overdressed rather than underdressed. Be guided by the location, as flat shoes or wedges are more practical for an autumn wedding in the woods than heels. Do you love tartan? We have a Confident Dress in Lochcarron Black Watch Tartan made from a mid-weight fabric that transcends seasons beautifully. You will look equally smart, whether you wear flats, boots, or heels and a headband for another occasion. What should the men wear? They can wear a suit with a t-shirt, or casual trousers, a shirt without a tie, and a jacket.

Bombshell Outfits for Wedding Guests     

Bombshell offers a wonderful selection of outfits for wedding guests. We use innovative techniques and timeless styles to make every woman feel glamorous and confident. Do you prefer wearing trousers? We have ‘Perfect’ Wide Leg Palazzo Pants in Black that sit on the waistline and flatter the hips. Made from a fluid mid-weight fabric, it provides the natural movement that’s so essential in a Palazzo. Does your autumn wedding dress code require headwear? Bombshell has an extensive range of styles and colours, whether you want a stylish headband or a glamorous fascinator.

We know you will find an autumn wedding outfit at Bombshell that makes you feel stylish and confident. Enjoy the autumn wedding!
